couple of weeks, the new biography of thomas jefferson by john mecham, very interesting book. i notice that consistently in quoting jefferson, and he has a great many things in that i've never seen before, "discussions of jefferson, that you look at -- he is always talking about liberty, the rule of law, tradition in order and belief in god. i think that really defines probably as well as anything i can think of where the conservative movement comes from today. i want to talk to a little bit about the current war political part of the movement. i am certainly part of it, as many of you want. and we have, of course, come out of the campaign. the left, as they always do, say, well, that is the end of conservatism. remember the new york times announced that was not known in the end of conservatism, republicanism as well. we, as people say, have been here before and it does not make a great deal of difference. the movement goes along.
